A Tulip Medley

Tulipomania Nonet

In sixteen-hundred and thirty-four

tulips arrived on Holland’s shore

each bulb’s value grew like gold

vast amounts were then sold

some lost their fortune

in these trade days –

Netherland’s

tulip

craze!

Thank you to Jael for inspiring me to try a variety of poem styles

(including Nonets).  Her poetry blog is one of my favorites!

Pleasing to the eye!

Glorify the Lord!

Here is a list of blogging friends who have either nominated me, tagged me, or shown blog love in the last few months. I’ve listed then in the order that they have honored me.  I do not participate in awards anymore; however, this is my way of thanking blogs that I follow for introducing me to their readers. I really appreciate the WordPress Family – all of you !

Thank you, to all of you, for your visits, likes, comments, and follows.  I don’t get around to visit everyone as often as I’d like to, but if you know I’d love a particular post of yours – be sure to bring it to my attention.

A special thank you to my kind and talented husband, Ian, who resuscitated my computer when it got the blue screen of death this week.  I now have a clean install and it runs faster than ever!  He also repaired my van and did the startup on our sprinkler system for all of our gardens.  I appreciate his companionship, prayers, and his desire to help so much!

I enjoy a word in season, so I'd love it if you added an apple to the bowl.
